This week we made a trek out to Edom, Tx to go blueberry picking at Blueberry Hill Farm. There you pick your own, eat all you can & pay for the rest! They charge only $10.00 for a full bucket that holds 12 pints. It was hot & humid outside about 90 degrees, yet we were prepared with hats & umbrellas. A nice treat was the farm provided cold water & cups a various areas in the picking fields. The kids had a great time eating & picking the berries. Running back had a hard time though. He is color blind and can only see blue, yellow & pink. Even though blueberries are blue, when they are ripe they have a whitish tinge to them when still on the bush. He had trouble telling if it was truly ripe or not, so we have several purplish and white berries. They are quite tart tasting but he said he likes them that way. We are hoping to make this a new family tradition. I am not to "hip" on the heat factor involved in the outing, but the sweet rewards and family time are truly worth it!
